Helping me keep it magical this month is one of my very favorite designers, Michele Ferguson, from the blog I Card Everyone. You can find her crafting right here https://icardeveryone.blogspot.com 

Both Michele and I LOVE Halloween, so it was my pleasure to invite her to partner up for this spooky challenge! I LOVE Michele's pretty, layered CAS style, and was super excited to see what she would create. Michele even surprised us with TWO amazing designs featuring Poppystamps products. Take a look!

For her Thank BOO card, Michele used Twisted Tree Oval, Surprise Skeleton, Boo Outline, and Simple Thank You! I love the deep blue and the bright yellow - -a surprising and trendy Halloween color combination!

I also used deep blue and jewel tone yellows, oranges, and greens to create the background panel for my own card. I squirted a few drops of alcohol ink and blew them all around using my brand new giant squishy rubber ball air blower. FUN! I could make these colorful YUPO paper cards all day long! I used images from Whittle Ghosts, Snowman and Trees from our newest release, and Boo Outline. A few Fairy Jewels in shades of green, navy and turquoise ad that magical sparkle at the end!

Now it's your turn to enter the Poppystamps challenge! We'd love to see what you'll create! Thank you so much to one of my creative muses, Michele Ferguson, from I Card Everyone!

Happy Thursday! Tiffany here with some more Poppystamps inspiration. I decided to play along with the challenge this month and use Washi tape. I don't feature Washi tape that often, but I should! It is an easy way to add a fun element to any papercraft. For this card, I kept it simple and used the Washi tape as a background to my die cuts.

To start, I added the Cornelia Aqua Wide Washi tape to a panel of heavyweight, white cardstock. It is much easier to roll out the Washi tape if you cut a scrap piece of cardstock and attach it at the end of the tape. I think it gives you something to hold on to as you roll out the tape smoothly on a piece of cardstock. After I adhered the Washi, I die cut the panel with the Stitched Rectangle Layers die. I die cut a few more layers with scrap cardstock for dimension behind this panel.

Next, I die cut the Village Rose and Background die several times from light and dark purple cardstock from the Twilight Purple paper pack. I adhered the layers together with liquid glue and adhered it to the Washi tape panel randomly. I trimmed off any excess flowers.

Next, I die cut the sentiment. Using the Big Hugs Sugar Script die, I die cut the shadow layer from vellum and the top layer three times from white cardstock. Finally, I added clear Fairy Drops around the panel to fill in the gaps and add a little shine. I really like this sweet and simple card to send a little love to a friend. Hope you will join us for the Washi challenge this month!

Challenge Reminder - Wonderful Washi
by Jeanne Jachna

Merry Christmas Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna

Do you love washi?  If the answer is a great big YES!  I sure hope you'll join us this month at Poppystamps for our challenge!

2021-09

Washi is a printed decorative masking tape that comes in lots of different sizes!  It's a great way to add a little strip of printed color or pattern just about anywhere on your design.

Merry Christmas Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU1

I made two simple cards using 4.5" washi tape from Memory Box.  This woodland print is called Watercolor Forest Greenery.  The wide width of the tape makes it easy to apply to an entire card base to create a background with a pattern paper look.  The washi has a bit of a shine to it making it look more expensive like a specialty paper. 

Merry Christmas Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-CU2

Like any other pretty background it seemed wrong to cover it up too much so I added a simple Merry Christmas Flourish over the top.  I die cut the word die twice - once in gold foil and once in Red cardstock.  I stacked the die cuts at a slight offset to allow the gold foil to shine through. 

Merry Christmas Script-Poppystamps-Jeanne Jachna-Side

A sprinkle of gold enamel dots is the finishing touch! 

Washi-Hello-CU1

My second card was made using the Memory Box Rose Bouquet washi.  I started the same as the first card.. with a background of washi tape and a double cut sentiment.  This time I used the Luscious Script Hello.

Washi-Hello-Side

This time I made a second panel of washi covered cardstock and fussy cut some of the pretty print from the paper using scissors. 

Washi-Hello-CU2

I attached the fussy cut pieces with adhesive foam tape so they are slightly raised.  This adds a little interest to the card and helps define the fussy cut portion.  I used colored cardstock matts to add a little more color to the cards too, but still they were both very simple to create. 

Washi-Hello

I hope you'll give Wonderful Washi a try and whether you use a whole panel or just a tiny piece you're welcome to join our September Challenge.  There are two prizes - a blog badge for our "favorite" and a $20 gift certificate for one random player.  It's a fun way to see how everyone else is using their die cuts and hopefully inspire you along the way!

Oh the wonders of  washi... so many ways to use it. I added the wide rose washi from Memory Box to a piece of white cardstock before cutting it with my die. I also fussy cut one of the rose bouquets and added it to the top corner.
